Next up, we have two energetic youths. :)

After many calories burned … David Schneider has earned … another well deserved, million metres, which brings his total to Two Million For The Season.

David - 2,000,000 x =D> ^O^ 💸💸

A million metres in just over 3 months is a terrific achievement. 8) =D> 👍 :)


At number twelve on the Meterboard … Patrick Monahan is owed an award … as he joins us with well over One Million Metres for the Season.

Patrick - 1,000,000 x =D> ^O^ 💸

Patrick, I wish you an enjoyable time with Free Spirits. Attaining over fifteen million metres after only five years of rowing is an outstanding achievement. =D> 8) 👍 :)

Thank you again, everyone, for your erg, ski-erg and bike-erg metre contributions to the Team Affiliation Standings. =D> 8) 💪👍

I didn’t need my crystal ball 🔮 … at all … in order to predict that young Mr Brinkman would rapidly reach Four Million Metres for The Season.

Colin - 4,000,000 x =D> ^O^ 💸💸💸💸

Out of the forty one days that have passed since your last million, you have rowed forty. That’s an outstanding example of energy, commitment and legwork. 8) ^O^ =D> 💪 :)


Slightly off topic now but belated congratulations to Collette Lancaster - Lockwood and Philip Price for their wonderful performances at the XVlI Australian Masters:

Collette - Four Gold Medals 🥇🥇🥇🥇 =D> ^O^ 💐

Philip - Four Gold Medals 🥇🥇🥇🥇 =D> ^O^ 🐈


Also a special mention for Lesley Duffy, who, in a few short months, has bettered nearly all of her old PBs by replacing them with some impressive new ones. 8) =D> 💐 :)

Another ginormous thank you, my fellow Free Spirts, for your contributions to The Team Affiliation Standings. :D =D>

A special mention for the following Free Spirits whose BikeErg/SkiErg metres ( which count fully for the affiliation standings ) have taken them over One Million Metres for the Season. The totals do not include their erg metres.

Juergen Grieb - 2,157,498 x =D> ^O^ - this includes the 100,000m BikeErg Challenge completed on 28.9.19 in 3.18.54.6 - 8) =D> ^O^

Richard Underwood - 1,704,177 x =D> ^O^

Claudius B - 1,074,271 x =D> ^O^

At the moment, we are in second place on The Team Affiliation Standings, comfortably ahead of the Diamonds. :D

A word of warning: although the Diamonds are over sixty, they are all extremely tough, determined and a force to be reckoned with 8) =D> :) ... and I should know … :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Hi Jill,

Thanks for recognising the effort! Free spirits are a supportive group of people and all with the rowing bug!

Years passed, my vizslas are hunting now on the other side. The profile photo has been taken more than 11 years ago.

This year then I re-joined the rowing club I used to row a long time ago. Rowing on the water too and racing even. It's good for keeping motivation.

Cheers,
Attila

Many congratulations to you. Keep focused, keep fit, especially if you still have your dogs ( Hungarian vizslas? ) to keep you company. 8) =D> :) 👍

My pleasure Attila. :)

It is good to know that being a member of Free Spirits has provided you with the support and enthusiasm to enjoy rowing again.

Thank you for explaining about your vizslas. Compared to our lifespan, we are only ever lucky enough to have the pleasure of a dog or dogs’ company for a short time before they travel on to the Happy Hunting Grounds.

Keep keeping fit.

Thank you Lesley :) - there are many other contributors ( yourself included ) to the various forums here, who often bring a smile to my face with their funny, witty posts. At the moment, I’m having a reread ( again ) through the Jokes Thread; it never fails to raise a smile and plenty of laugh out loud moments too. Still on the subject of smiles, I like your Avatar picture. Mind how you go with the Crazy Bear Challenge. :)


Teil Scott … from the county of Surrey … has breasted the tape … with a flurry … of metres, that have taken him comfortably past his First Million Metres for The Season.

Teil - =D> ^O^ x 1,000,000 💸

Great going - keep up the hard work and motivation all the way to your next million. =D> 8) 👍 :)
